Refusing to Give Up

My Mom cornered me last Sunday morning. She tried to talk me into quitting my job and instead venture into business. She told me that I am not successful. Thanks, Mom for informing me that...Anyway, the truth is I want to go into business but not now. I still have my plans. I know she meant well and she just wanted the best for me. But really, what's the measure of success? How can you tell if someone is successful or not? The last time I checked, I was still happy with my job. Yeah, I'm still a b**ch when it comes to dealing with my customers but I like the nature of my work. I still think that my job is one of the most important jobs in the world because it is geared towards service--serving others. God gives me skills and I am using them to serve others. I still have my ideals. Isn't that a success?

And if I were to give up on most of my dreams, I might as well be dead.

I still want the pursuit I'm doing. I still want to try everything I can to make my dreams come true.

I refuse to give up.

And someday, I know, my dreams will come true and much more.

Bless you! You're one determined person, and that's one thing I've always wanted to acquire. I severely lack determination, and overflowing of practicalness. It's sometimes not happy anymore. So good for you!
